These serious infections generally cause very harmful effects in the long term and need to be not only quickly recognized but also treatment started to ensure a controlled recovery and freedom from further recurrences or relapses. Periodontal treatment therefore is the most essential requirement of any teeth or mouth ailment believed to be caused by plaque that harbors attacking bacteria. The net result of untreated or inadequately cared for problems could be loose and falling teeth and chronic bleeding gums.

One should recognize the main symptoms of these gum diseases and quickly seek expert dental opinion and treatment. The major outward symptoms are: • Bad breath, gingivitis • Gum irritation, swelling or redness • Easily bruised or bleeding gums after brushing • Itch, aches and uneasy gums • Deformation of teeth and gums • Increased space between teeth and molars • Difficult chewing with increased tooth sensitivity The symptoms could be just starting or you may be having the problems without noticing the seriousness of the disease.
